  (The Thread Got Warped...)

Stock slide again

Dow down as much as 200 points as Fed credit plan fails to reassure investors. Bank of America woes are a drag.

 Re: Stocks Slide Again..

With all due respect, my friend... why the daily updates on the stock market? We get it, things are pretty bad. Personally I think we all need to concentrate on the Lord, and reaching others for Christ.

Not saying we should just stick our heads in the sand... but there is only so much we can do. God is in control of whats happening, not us.

Heaping bad news on top of bad news doesnt exactly build others up, or encourage us...

I plan on popping them up daily, it helps me to get better prepared. It's much better than sticking your head in the sand. Don't you believe in staying current with the times, having vision, preparing and preparing others? Do you listen to prophets like David Wilkerson or do you think their a drag? Sorry if it's gloom and doom for you. It certainly is not for me but a better opportunity to get my house ready.

 Re:

Respectfully, it is a little much. All one had to do is open up a web browser and read the stories for themselves. This website is better then that. If you wish to get better prepared, do so, I encourage you. But how will producing articles that anyone can read on any main web browser, glorify the Lord on this website.

Why not focus on Jesus instead of the increadible shrinking stock market or conspiracy theories? How do these articles glorify the Lord?

 Re:

I'm really concerned for about this idea that if it feels good it's God. If it doesn't specifically do something for you does that mean it's not God? It's not supposed to have an ear tickling effect.

This is the news and current events section maybe you should pray and ask the Lord for your own nitch. Sorry so blunt but you asked for it.

If you want to glorify the Lord may I suggest to you that you find something that does glorify the Lord because this does not. Honestly...

Is it all about you all the time? So who has the problem here? Obviously not me.

 Re:

Greetings Rivqah

Your last post to this thread was not how brothers and sisters in Christ should be speaking to one another. You really need to spend some time in prayer about your attitude and heart.

I will be praying for you

Believe me, I'm probably more current on all this stuff than you are because it's having a dramatic effect on my business. Yes, I believe in having a vision and preparing. I do that daily.

No... I dont pay much attention to so-called "prophets" because I havent seen any yet that haven't made false prophecies, making them (according to scripture) false prophets.

You've been here long enough to know that this statement certainly does not apply to 99% of the folks on this forum. This is a rediculous statement.

Why be so snarky to everyone? You get challenged so now you're going to be this way about it?

Uhmmm... look in the mirror, my friend.

You're the one making a mountain out of a mole hill.

All we said was there seems to be no point in posting the same thing over and over again everyday... whats the purpose? We all are quite aware of whats going on concerning the economy... especially us "small business" owners... especially us effected by the real estate and construction industry.

You dont have to get so snarky about it. Lighten up, Francis.

 Re: What is the focus point?

Rivqah: Christian CONTENTMENT is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition. ~Jeremiah Burroughs

On PREPARATION I like: "Prayer is not preparation for the work, it is the work." -- Oswald Chambers.

I also do not get the point of searching out from 1000 living men/women who call themselves “prophet”, who said what, and when, about the events of today. Is the point then that I should believe him/her, follow him/her, give great weight to what they say, run after them? For the record I listen to the preaching of Wilkerson and others. No problem and no glory to them.

I appreciate posts of news about the Kingdom of this World from many angles/subjects. This thread included. However, a glance at the world is enough. I pray the next post on this $ subject is that a US government leader calls for National prayer and repentance because they cannot fix the problems. (Just as another King did: 2 Kings 6:27 And he [the King] said, "If the Lord do not help thee, whence shall I help thee.").

I also understand the sense that one is calling out a warning, a message, and there is a little response. How about this one: PRAY - PRAY NOW - PRAY TONIGHT. It is Revival or ruin.

[Edit] Oh. My. There are a lot of posts added since I read Rivqah’s plan for daily posts, a thought it could help to post this. I will read the others now.
